The guitar is an instrument that can be as complicated or as simple as you like. In this book, aimed at intermediate players, we look at minimalist approaches for scales, arpeggios, and chords to help you apply the concept of ‘minimal’ on the fretboard—minimal patterns, minimal variations, and minimal ways to navigate the fretboard using the smallest piece of information possible. Here, we take advantage of the guitar’s (standard) tuning nuances to make minimal amounts of information available all over the fretboard.

As you grow as a musician, you’ll find yourself in situations where a minimalist approach is needed. This might be due to the size of the band or the style of music you’re playing. It helps to have tools like this so that you’re not stepping on anyone’s toes, playing too much, or playing too loud. You’ll often find that a couple of well-placed chord stabs work wonders as a rhythm part, or that a single scale pattern used well can be the key to a more melodic solo.

Minimalist isn’t a word that often gets associated with guitarists, but not over-thinking things can be a great tool to add your arsenal.
